Victoria season 2: Jenna Coleman opens up about sex scenes with Tom Hughes

The ITV show left off last year with Victoria giving birth to her first child, and season two picks up a month later in 1840, with the Monarch struggling to maintain a work-life balance and raise her baby.

Speaking about the importance of sex in the Queen and Prince Albert’s relationship, Jenna revealed that she disagreed that the apparent “Poldark-style” over-sexing of their romantic scenes was a problem in season one. 

“I think sex was a huge part of their relationship. They were a young couple, completely and utterly in love, who went on to have nine children,” she said in an interview with Radio Times magazine.

The 31-year-old Doctor Who star continued: “Albert to her was a hero, she adored him, and sex was a huge part of that.”

Meanwhile, the actress has also hinted at what we can expect from the character in the period drama’s second season.

“A lot of what we’re telling in this series is the expectation that as soon as Victoria was a mother, then Albert would take over and she would be in the nursery.

“But Victoria, being incredibly stubborn and forthright, kicked against that and in the first few years of their marriage that caused a lot of strife,” she explained. 

Tom, 31, also confessed that this will be the first time he’s signed on for a second series of a TV show, and it will be a challenge for his “restless” personality.

“I have a restless quality to me and I always want to move forward, so this is a new challenge,” he said enthusiastically.
